BTEI Courses

Back to Education Initiative (BTEI)

The Back to Education Initiative (BTEI) provides part-time courses for adults and young people who wish to return to learning. Anyone can take part in these courses but they are aimed primarily at those with little or no formal educational qualifications and there are no fees for anyone on a medical card or their dependents or for anyone with less than upper second level education.

A programme may be offered for anything from 1 hour to 17 hours per week for up to 33 weeks per year.

CDETB colleges and centres delivering BTEI offer a wide range of courses at times which suit the learners. These could be in the mornings, afternoons, evenings or at weekends.

All courses offer certification usually at Junior Certificate, Leaving Certificate or QQI Levels 3, 4 and 5. It is hoped that BTEI will allow those with family, work and other commitments to return to education and training and gain qualifications in their chosen area.

The following BTEI courses will be available in Cabra Community College for 2019/20:

Office/Reception Skills (QQI Level 4)

An introduction to the skills needed to work in any office environment. This course is excellent for those who are looking to move on to full-time Level 5 Office/Computer Skills programmes and future employment opportunities.

Healthcare (QQI Level 4)

This course provides an introduction to the Healthcare sector and will develop your skills and prepare students for the
work involved in the level 5 qualification. Work experience in the health sector is offered as part of this programme.

Office Adminstration (QQI Level 5)

This is a part-time course offered over two years and is a definite advantage in
finding work in any office or administration area.
